SBLive handles Blank-O with kidgloves
 
Is it just me, cuz I certainly expected better from SBLive in dealin with our treasonous ex-governor. Seems you guys lobbed a bunch of softballs at her and spared her the grillin she so rightly deserved. Maybe I'm jumpin the gun here but my sources in the governor's mansion tell me you guys soft-served her.

Al, perhaps I missed something, but SBLive hasn't even posted the interview yet! Perhaps you should let the "presses" roll before drawing any conclusions. Give 'em a chance. I'm eager to actually see or hear what questions were posed to our Governor and what the responses are. If nothing else, (and with nothing else to go on yet) I applause this site for acheiving new levels. I think this site has more "fight" than others I've seen and I predict that it will continue to grow verses the two paragraph "who shot who last night" media.

Here am I ;) We gave her four years to get it right. I will listen to the interview when it is posted but I can not see how a sound bite will change the last four years. Good post Sir Al. She is still trying to blame our President for the way LA handled the disaster. The DNC is hell bent on their elite socialist agenda.

Treasonous?

I prefer my duck roasted, not grilled.

The feminine side of Kathy Blanco shows she has a very big heart. Having six kids and being a family person shows. This is a very hard state to be Governor of. I think she did the right thing by stepping down so this state could move forward. I hope Bobby has the back bone to get the job done.

Yes, T-R-E-A-S-O-N-O-U-S! Thats what I call it when someone takes a dump on the Second Amendment and wipes their butt with the Constitution. What do you call it?

I think Al is referencing the taking of firearms from citizens during Katrina. Did Blanco actually authorize that? :duck:

Al...I'm really there with ya.. I think the unarming of law abiding citizens during a disaster is a disgrace against our constitution!! yes I do! (plz note the exclamation marks) But I seriously doubt that was Blanco's doing..... There is plenty of blame to go around regarding the Katrina disaster.... Plenty.. surely you agree?

I believe she did. And even if she didnt, the buck's gotta stop somewhere, and since she was the chief executive officer of the state and sworn to defend our Constitutional rights, the ultimatel responsibility for that travesty is her's. Furthermore, I think she, as well as Nagin and Compass and every peace officer involved, should be brought up on charges of high treason and forced to answer for their actions in court. It would be absurd for any of those criminals to claim ignorance of the illegality of this most serious of crimes against the people, as the very offices they hold mandate that they uphold the law of the land.

I'm with ya on this one.. yes it was entirely wrong to do such a thing.. I too would like to know exactly who authorized such a thing... and it seems everything I've read so far.. place blame for this solely on the Chief of Police and Mayor Nagin....

Here's a video of some folks who had their rights violated.


Al Swearengen 10-31-2007 05:39 PM

If any of you have NOT viewed the above video, I urge you to do so! I had seen it once, but I viewed it again, and it brings my blood to a boil every time. Those people who had their guns confiscated, illegally confiscated, would've been within their rights to offer armed resistence, and no jury in the country could in good conscience do anything but call their actions justified. If you folks in the membership have any appreciation for the gravity of this crime, I hope you'll join me in formally demandin and insistin that every single law enforcement officer involved as well as their superiors be brought up on charges of high treason against the republic and executed, which is the penalty for that most serious crime. If you consider yourselves Americans and freedom lovers, it is your patriotic duty to ensure that this heinous crime and the criminals who perpetrated it are brought to justice.

Exaggerate much?

I would call it Unconstitutional.

Why is, in your opinion, ignoring one part of the Constitution (the 2nd Amendment) an executable offense, but ignoring another (the definition of treason) not?

Ya think? If so, ya got another think comin. Ya cant see my face, so ya cant see the fury and righteous indignation in my eyes, but you're willfully obtuse if ya took the tone of my words for exaggeration. We cant just sit back and let em get away with a slap on the wrist, or let em get away with it altogether. This is the single most serious crime against the republic in years, perpetrated by the very people we entrusted and empowered to defend it, and the guilty must be made an example of so as to ensure it never happens again.

trea·son (trzn)
n.
1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2. A betrayal of trust or confidence

Any violation of the Bill Of Rights is treason, but most especially a violation of the Second Amendment, since it is this very right that safeguards all of our other inalienable rights against a tyranical government. Ergo, their actions constitute treason. End of story.
